How do I prepare for a recruiting interview?

How do I prepare for a recruiting interview?

By "recruiting interview" I assume you mean an interview for a recruiter position. My background is predominantly in technical / design recruiting, so I can only offer advice in that domain.

I'm stealing this principle from my friend Eric Eriksson: The best way to prepare for a recruiting interview (or any interview) is to assume that you are already in that position and be prepared to discuss how you would perform within that role. Your past experience is what led you to the interview, now is the time to present what you can do for the potential employer.

  • Be specific: try to avoid speaking in

By "recruiting interview" I assume you mean an interview for a recruiter position. My background is predominantly in technical / design recruiting, so I can only offer advice in that domain.

I'm stealing this principle from my friend Eric Eriksson: The best way to prepare for a recruiting interview (or any interview) is to assume that you are already in that position and be prepared to discuss how you would perform within that role. Your past experience is what led you to the interview, now is the time to present what you can do for the potential employer.

  • Be specific: try to avoid speaking in theory. Be pragmatic so your interviewer can get an idea of ​​how you would actually solve an existing problem. In technical recruiting, the most common problem is a lack of quality candidates, so be prepared to discuss your pragmatic strategy behind tackling that challenge specifically for the company.
  • Analyze the Industry - You must demonstrate a firm understanding of the recruitment industry, not just a conditional understanding of your past responsibilities. Talk about hiring trends, changes in best practices, and the market in general. This shows not only your understanding of the recruiting space, but also your passion for it.
  • Get creative - make it stand out. Recruitment is a mix of art and science. Elaborate on the artistic side. Provide creative and practical answers to questions like: How would you search for niche skill sets? How do you build trust with candidates? How do you interact with the candidates? etc.
  • Don't come off as a salesperson: ** this might be more of a subjective opinion ** Personally, and especially for a technical recruiting role, coming out as a salesperson is a detour. Most of your interactions will be with engineers, and generally engineers are not as receptive to bullish sellers. You need to be confident, personable, and assertive, but those characteristics don't necessarily translate into an overzealous recruiter. A popular opinion of recruiters is that they are really good with people, which is true, but there are more than one type of "people" in this world. For technical recruiting, you have to be really good with engineers and that's where the art of recruiting comes in.
  • Research the company - Get to know the company inside and out. If you are a consumer-oriented product company, be an active user of the product. If you're a B2B, get to know your customers, their highlights, their strengths and weaknesses, their finances (if publicly available), your competitors, and the leaders within the company.


I hope this helps. I'm sure you will do great!

An employer will look for someone who is street smart, knows how to get the job done efficiently and effectively, and will be able to escalate in a reasonable amount of time.

You have to be mentally prepared to work on tasks that are repetitive in nature and delivered on strict deadlines.

If you can handle the above, then you should be able to do reasonably well in an interview for a recruiting position.

All the best in your job search !!!

If it's cooler, you can use the IndiaBix website to get ready.

Before attending the interview, stop by Glassdoor and you can get an idea about the interview question and the entire process.

Visit the company website and search for the company name on LinkedIn and find all the details.

2. Focus on the job description and keyword, what the company wants as an employee.

3. Study the basic questions of the interview.

4.Take help from your tube, it works fine.

5. Study more and work hard.

6 Be confident.

If I'm interviewing for a recruiter for us, what I want is a lot of energy, excellent communication skills at all levels of the corporate structure, sales experience, and a fun, open-minded environment. However, knowledge of our industrial market is not required, one must be open to learning. I want a person who likes to be alone with little direction after the initial learning curve.

I assume the questions are for SDE roles.

Well, you first need to understand the difference between companies like Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, etc. and other software companies.

How are your engineers different?

What additional thing is needed to get into these engineering positions?

Why are the engineers of these companies paid more (and much more in some countries) compared to other companies?

Yes, engineers at these and other companies also write code. The main difference comes in terms of day-to-day ownership and responsibility.

I assume the questions are for SDE roles.

Well, you first need to understand the difference between companies like Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, etc. and other software companies.

How are your engineers different?

What additional thing is needed to get into these engineering positions?

Why are the engineers of these companies paid more (and much more in some countries) compared to other companies?

Yes, engineers at these and other companies also write code. The main difference comes in terms of day-to-day ownership and responsibility.

In these companies, you own your module completely and have to come up with the design of the piece of software you are going to write to solve a problem. The coding part is just the implementation and takes about 20-30% of the time allotted to a project. Most of the time is spent designing things with the best and most optimal algorithms to save on company resources (servers, computing power, etc.). This is the main reason that the interviews at these companies focus on algorithms, as they want people who can think outside the box to design algorithms that can save the company thousands of dollars.

So the bottom line is that you must be good at Data Structures and Algorithms to get into them. There is no other alternative.

On the coding part during the interviews, after discussing the algorithm for a problem, the candidate is expected to write clear code that is syntactically and semantically correct. So that has to be practiced extensively.

Use the time to prepare well for tree and graph algorithms, dynamic programming, backtracking, greedy algorithms, etc. These are always the hot topics for interviews at these companies.

Some common algorithm problems asked in SDE Interviews on Amazon:

  • Save all leaf nodes in a binary tree in a doubly linked list using the right node as the next node and the left node as the previous node.
  • Given a matrix, find the maximum j - i such that arr j> arr i
  • Remove duplicate alternate characters from a character array, you have to do that instead, such as keeping only the odd occurrences of each character.

  1. Example: Entry: "you have beautiful eyes" 
  2. Result: "you gtbeaiful is" 
  3. The complexity of the allowed time was O (n) and the complexity of the space was O (1) 
  • There are 1 million words in a file. Find the 10 most frequent words in that file.
  • Find all nodes at a distance k from a given node in a binary tree
  • Clone a linked list with the next and random pointer
  • Serialize and deserialize a linked list with the next and random pointer.
  • Build a binary tree from given tours in order and preorder.
  • Returns a tree so that each internal node stores the sum of all its child nodes. Each leaf node stores zero.
  • How will you implement the linked list with 1 million nodes? How will you access node 999999? Provide optimal design strategy and implementation.
  • Reversal of linked list in K groups.
  • Given a positive integer N, count all possible distinct binary strings of length N so that there are no consecutive ones.
  • Check if the given binary tree is balanced or not. The definition was that two sheets should not have a height difference greater than one.
  • Remove duplicates from the string instead in O (n).
  • Connect the nodes on the same level in a binary tree.
  • Find the sum of the data of all the leaves of a binary tree at the same level and then multiply the sums obtained from all the levels.

    you have to count the number of occurrences of that word in that matrix. you can move to any of eight valid directions from your current position.
  • You are given a string as input that represents a route. You have to normalize that path instead (NO ADDITIONAL SPACE).

  1. eginput: "\ a \ b \ c \ .. \ .. \ file.txt"  
  2. output: "\ a \ file.txt" 
  • Less common ancestor of two nodes in a binary tree
  • Given two ordered arrays (with repeating elements) find the k-th minimum number of both arrays.
  • Given the root of a binary tree, a value n and k. Find the sum of nodes at a distance k from the node with value n
  • Find an element in a rotated array
  • The cost of a share on each day is given in a matrix, find the maximum profit you can get by buying and selling on those days.

  1. For example, if the given matrix is ​​{100, 180, 260, 310, 40, 535, 695},  
  2. the maximum profit that can be obtained by buying on day 0, selling the 
  3. day 3. Buy back on day 4 and sell on day 6.  
  4. If the given price matrix is ​​ordered in decreasing order, 
  5. then no profit can be made. 
  • Given two linked lists, they both represent a number. Create a linked list that contains your sum.
  • Given a binary search tree, print the path that has the sum equal to k and has minimum hops. that is, if there are multiple paths with the sum equal to k, print the path with the minimum number of nodes.
  • An MxN matrix that contains whole numbers (positive, negative, and zeros). For each position that contains 0, mark the corresponding row and column as 0.
  • Rotate the MxN die 90 degrees.
  • Find the nth number that contains the digit k or is divisible by k. (2 <= k <= 9)
  • Write a program to connect the next left node in a binary tree. Should the first node of each level also point to the last node of the next level? (Without using Queue)
  • Convert a binary tree to its addition tree (each node is the sum of its children)
  • Given a directed graph. Construct another graph from a given graph so that if there is a path from vertices A to vertices B and from B to C, then the path from A to C and C to A should also exist.
  • Implement hashmap on your own. Write a good hash function for the string.
  • Given an array, arrange the elements so that the number formed by concatenating the elements is greater.

  1. For example: input = 9, 93, 24, 6,  
  2. the output should be: 9,93,6,24. 
  3. This is because if you concatenate all the numbers,  
  4. 993624 is the highest number that can be formed. 
  • Given a string, find the longest substring that is palindrome.
  • Since the integers are read from a data stream. Find the median of the items efficiently read. For simplicity, assume there are no duplicates.
  • Write an efficient program to print k largest elements in an array. The elements of the array can be in any order.
  • Given an unsorted matrix and a number K. Find 2 numbers such that the sum is K.
  • Given the n-ary tree. Zigzag level order crossing.
  • Given the string s and the string t, find whether the entire permutation of t is present as a substring in s.
  • Design a stack that contains an integer value such that the getMinimum () function returns the minimum item on the stack. Implement the popMin () function that would pull the minimum element out of the original stack.
  • Given a set of intervals like 5-10, 15-20, 25-40, 30-45, 50-100. Find the i-th smallest number in these intervals. Assume there are no duplicate numbers.

  1. for example: 1st smallest number = 5 6th smallest number = 10  
  2. Seventh smallest number = 15 and so on.  
  • Given a matrix that first strictly increases and then strictly decreases. Find an element in this array.
  • Given a string example: shoppingwithflipkartiseasy, we now have this string and a dictionary containing valid words, now we need to split the sentence into words separated by spaces. Result: buying with flipkart is easy
  • Given a series 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, ……, here in this series are present all the numbers that only have factors and only 2, 3 or 5. Need to write a node to generate the n-th number for the series. With the best focus and complexity
  • Given a tree with edge weights, find any path in the tree with the maximum sum of edges.
  • Merge k ordered matrices.
  • Given a maze, a start point and an end point find the shortest way to get to the end point from the start point.
  • Given a phrase and a set of characters. Find the minimum window within which the character set can be found in the sentence in any order.
  • You are given a string of zeros and ones, you have to find the number of substrings in the string that starts and ends with a 1.

  1. ex: input: 0010110010 output: 6 
  • You are given a mapping like a -> 1, b-> 2… z-> 26. You have to print all possible combinations of a given number using the information above.

  1. for example: input: 121 
  2. output: aba, la, au 
  • You are given a mapping like a -> 1, b-> 2… z-> 26. You have to print all possible combinations of a given number using the information above.

  1. for example: input: 121 output: aba, la, au 
  • Given a 50,000 word dictionary. Given a phrase without spaces, add spaces to make it a proper sentence.

  1. for example: input: thequickbrownfoxjumpoverlazydog  
  2. exit: the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog 
  • Given an unordered matrix of n integers that can contain integers from 1 to n. Some elements may be repeated multiple times, and some other elements may be absent from the array. Count the frequency of all the elements that are present and print the missing elements.

  1. Examples: Input: arr = {2, 3, 3, 2, 5}  
  2. Output: The frequencies of all elements are shown below.  
  3. 1 -> 0 2 -> 2 3 -> 2 4 -> 0 5 -> 1 
  • Get the next largest number using the same digits of a number.
    Eg, For 123456, next number would be 123465
  • Given a 2D Boolean matrix, calculate the number of islands. A group of connected ones forms an island. For example, the following matrix contains 5 islands

  1. Entry: mat =  
  2. {{1, 1, 0, 0, 0}, 
  3. {0, 1, 0, 0, 1},

  5. {0, 0, 0, 0, 0},  
  6. {1, 0, 1, 0, 1}} 
  7. Departure: 5 
  • Given two lowercase strings, the task is to convert them to anagrams. The only allowed operation is to remove a character from any string. Find the minimum number of characters that will be removed to make anagrams of both strings?

If two strings contain the same data set in any order, the strings are called Anagrams.

  1. Examples: 
  2.  
  3. Input: str1 = "bcadeh" str2 = "hea" 
  4. Departure: 3 
  5. We need to remove b, c and d from str1. 
  6.  
  7. Input: str1 = "cddgk" str2 = "gcd" 
  8. Departure: 2 
  9.  
  10. Input: str1 = "bca" str2 = "acb" 
  11. Departure: 0

  14. I need to convert "un" to "atur". This can be done using 
  15. below three operations.  
  16. Replace 'n' with 'r', insert t, insert a 
  • Given a string with repeated characters, the task is to rearrange the characters in a string so that no two adjacent characters are the same.

Note: It can be assumed that the string has only lowercase English alphabets.

  1. Examples: 
  2.  
  3. Input: aaabc  
  4. Departure: abacá  
  5.  
  6. Input: aaabb

There are some good interview experiences, FAQs, brain teasers, HR, and design questions for Amazon interviews with proper answers on GeekyPrep.com. Join us, prepare for interviews, get hired! . You can read them there.

Good luck!

It's almost impossible to tell unless more details are available. How did you fail the interviews? From the context, I assume it was explicitly stated that they rejected it due to technical insufficiency.

In that case, I'm wondering how you got the 6 years of IT experience ... The way it sounds to me, it doesn't make sense, so I'll infer that there's more to the picture than what you've mentioned. The rest are just speculation and it doesn't have to apply to you at all.

You may have been doing "support" and other nonsense that gives you a worthwhile experience.

It's almost impossible to tell unless more details are available. How did you fail the interviews? From the context, I assume it was explicitly stated that they rejected it due to technical insufficiency.

It could be that you've been doing "support" and other nonsensical nonsense that gives you zero to nothing experience. Those 6 years of IT that you shouldn't even mention because it likely looks like you're creating an impression that has no basis in real value. Sorry.

It could be that you are opting for high-level positions that would require more than 10 years of actual experience. Or maybe more than 5 years of experience in a certain technology.

It could be that you are not perceived as a team player. Real coding skills are great, but merely great coding skills get you nowhere, usually. The rock star developer is rarely stronger than a team of OK'ish developers.

In any case, when rejected, you should always ask (no, demand!) For feedback. And nothing crappy like "you didn't fit the profile I was looking for." Ask for details - the more precise the answer, the better. Most companies will give you something of value and if you put it on paper, you will see a pattern. That is the reason for their rejections. Do something about it and voila.

I recommend that, before you start interviewing for a job, read the book "How to win friends and influence people." The book has been around for 100 years and the principles are timeless. It's an easy read and you can finish it this weekend.

There is only one tip and one strategy you need to prepare for an interview.

Get the hiring manager to like you.

You may be the brightest engineer in the world, but if the hiring manager doesn't like you, you won't get an offer.

There is only one tip and one strategy you need to prepare for an interview.

Get the hiring manager to like you.

You may be the brightest engineer in the world, but if the hiring manager doesn't like you, you won't get an offer.

  1. Make a good first impression - smile. Yes, you have to find a reason to smile when you first meet the hiring manager. And not the creepy, forced smile Dwight Schrute gave Pam at the office. It has to be authentic. "I am not a smiley." Well, you won't get the job. I don't know why, but people like people who smile better.
  1. Being genuinely interested in the other person. This may be more difficult than you think. Take a genuine interest in hearing what problem the hiring manager is having. There is a job available because there is a major problem in your department. Show genuine interest in the problem. This is not the time to say how awesome your resume is.
  2. Remember that a person's name is to a person the sweetest and most important sound in any language. Memorize their name. Don't mispronounce their name. I was doing business development a couple of weeks ago. I called vice president Mark instead of Matt. He kindly corrected me. He was ashamed. I didn't get the deal.
  3. Listen carefully, encourage the hiring manager to talk about themselves. It is very difficult to do, but let the hiring manager do the talking most of the time. Hiring managers are trained by HR so that the candidate is the one speaking most of the time. Use a Jedi mind trick and have the hiring manager do most of the talking. Ask them something specific that only they would know and tell them that you always wanted to know. They will talk for hours about it. “Interesting, didn't I know you studied physics at Stanford? I've always wondered how his show is different from others across the country. " They will tell you. Sit back and take it all in.
  4. Speak in terms of the other person's interests. If you have to stalk your Facebook, Instagram, or other social profiles, go for it. Look around your office for clues. They will be there. If you were in my office, you would see golf and books. Two things I treasure.
  5. Make the hiring manager feel important and do it sincerely. You cannot please. You can fake it. Even if deep down you don't like this person. That is a sign that this job may not be suitable.

A job interview is a sales situation.

I have seen the most inexperienced candidates receive offers from my clients because they liked them.

Why do you think sophisticated HR departments create skill tests and put you through endless roadblocks in the process? Because they know that HR managers are prone to hiring someone they like rather than someone who is the most qualified.

People are not hired because they are the most qualified.

Let me repeat it so it seeps into your being. People are not hired because they are the most qualified. One person was hired because he liked them.

When I call a client and ask him how the interview with the candidate I sent him was like, I look forward to those three amazing words.

"I liked."

The courses and profile you mentioned are not my cup of tea and therefore I would rather give you some general advice that may be helpful for your preparation. Remember, I am not going to touch on the technical side and therefore when it comes to the technical aspects I would sum it up in one line by saying "grab the basics and dive into them".

The courses and profile you mentioned are not my cup of tea and therefore I would rather give you some general advice that may be helpful for your preparation. Remember, I am not going to touch on the technical side and therefore when it comes to the technical aspects I would sum it up in one line by saying "grab the basics and dive into them".

Moving on to other aspects of a recruiting drive, it usually consists of a group discussion and an interview. Let's go into each of these one by one:

GROUP DISCUSSION:

This round of exercise usually checks an individual's various abilities such as how he/she presents a point in diverse group of people, how good as a team player he/she is, is he cordial? is he dominating? What he/she thinks about a particular aspect? etc.

Here are few important tips for Group Discussion:

1. Initiate the discussion. That doesn't mean that you speak crap and initiate the discussion just for the sake of doing it. If you are starting it, put forward your points which might be arbitrary or might be balanced, depending upon the topic and your knowledge/thoughts on that.

2. Allow others to speak. This is very important. No matter how much you know about the subject, let others speak and present their points. It shows that you accept others opinions too without being dominating.

3. Keep an erect posture. This is important for interview too and therefore, why not start it with group discussion. It shows your confidence, alertness and eagerness.

4. Take active part in the discussion. If you initiate the discussion, chip in with few more points in between without denying anyone a chance to speak.

5. Steal the points. This is a quality, not a deceit. Suppose if you come across such a topic which is out of your knowledge, it becomes difficult to gather points and therefore, wait for sometime before you speak. Take cues from what others are speaking and then involve yourself in the discussion.

6. Be updated with current topics. There is a lot happening in the world these days. Keep yourself updated with issues/topics that can be hot favorites for the discussion. Apart from this, there are some conventional topic which needs to be prepared and can be accessed via internet.

7. Maintain eye contact. If you don't do this and speak pointing to any specific individual in the group, it shows your diffidence and can be a recipe for your rejection.

8. Don't look at invigilators. There is tendency to look at the invigilators if someone puts a strong point in favor or argument. Remember, you are there to discuss something and not to impress them. It is just a hypothetical situation of an actual workplace where a lot of meetings/discussions take place.

9. Concise communication. Speak to the point. There is no point becoming a chatter box and talking crap. Remain to the point and keep them concise and clear.

10. Maintain a stable pitch. Your decibel determines your behavior. Therefore, keep the pitch not so high and not so low too. It must be audible and should not sound sarcastic/harsh/dominating etc.

INTERVIEW:

Remember, Interview is a two-way communication and not an interrogation. Also, an interview flows in the direction you want it to flow. There are few points for a good interview:

1. Dress well. Don't be a miser and try to fool interviewers by wearing an unsophisticated, borrowed dress which doesn't fits your skin at all. Spend some money into yourself, you are going for a white-collar job and not for daily wage. Dress properly.

2. Have a firm handshake. As soon as you meet the other person, shake hands firmly but don't hold his hands tightly or too loosely. A firm handshake with a warm smile and eye contact begins the interview on a positive note.

3. Mug up your resume. Very often, in various mocks that i conduct, this is an emerging pattern that applicants even don't know what they have written in that two page crap. If their strength is leadership, they say something different. Mug up everything from your resume. If you give a wrong answer, it creates a negative impact.

3. Justify your strengths/hobbies. This is again born out of my personal experience. Applicants either don't know why a particular strength is their strength or very often, they give very cheap justification for the same. It is not necessary to have five strengths/hobbies. Keep them two or three but should be properly justifiable.

4. Be diplomatic. Don't be an honest nerd uttering out everything. You should streamline the interview and take the flow in the direction according to you. If you give interviewer a chance to dominate, you have already screwed up your rest of the interview.

In this case, specially "weakness" question should be specifically taken care of because at times it can backfire on you.

5. Have a good set of questions prepared. When recruiter gives ball in your court to ask few questions, do ask them. Ask about company's long term strategies, what it is doing to achieve its vision/objectives, how is its work culture (if you have mentioned work culture as one of the reasons for your aspirations to work with the company, don't make a fool by asking about work culture.)

One of the finest interview hacks that i have come across is to talk about interviewer's journey and how he surpassed the demanding challenges. In this way, he feels good about the conversation and your chances of selection maximize.

6. Always keep the ball in your court. The best interview advice that i ever received was from my late elder brother who had just one basic concept which says "you are the driver of your own interview" and it aptly fits into how an interview proceeds.

By this, I mean to say is that don't provide unnecessary set of details which can evoke further questions. Frame your answers in such a way that the path of an interview diverts as per your need.

7. Know the company. Get to know everything. By everything, i mean everything.


Hope it helps........Thanks

Can I identify the flaw in your question? When you are more knowledgeable than the interviewer, you may never get to the stage of being interviewed. Certainly when you bring up points where the interviewer has no idea what you are talking about, that is also a bad sign. Asking the interviewer to explain Fundamental Attribution Error, or the Dunning Kruger effect, is baiser de la mort. Applying the appropriate phrase in Latin or French is also out of place.

The rejection of the candidate occurs when they realize that the candidate knows more than they do, there is no interview in this scenario, only brief

Candidate rejection occurs when they realize the candidate knows more than them, there is no interview in this scenario, only breviloquent rejection. Interviewers also have an anathema for when you use sesquipedalian terms. The number of interviewers who will hire someone they think can outdo them is exiguous. Don’t do it. Also, don’t list all of those degrees and certifications if you want a job.

Don’t worry about deadlines. The reality with all deadlines is that they are subject to slip as the real-world conditions change. Do your best, but don’t expect perfection.

Reframe your question, for example, 'I did not finish all of my SAT questions within the allotted time; Should I throw my SAT in the trash and go out instead of handing it over? 'That is absurd, since everyone knows that the SAT is designed to be so difficult that most people would not be able to finish all the questions in the allotted time.

Consider the challenge of coding in the same way: the goal is to show how your brain works, dem

'That is absurd, since everyone knows that the SAT is designed to be so difficult that most people would not be able to finish all the questions in the allotted time.

Consider the coding challenge the same way: the goal is to show how your brain works, demonstrate the fundamental skills and creativity, not to show that you can be super-human. Any company worth working for, with managers worth having as managers, will take a partial success and evaluate realistically.

A recruiter is not required to locate you, just as you are not required to work or be "loyal" to a limited number of recruiters. You represent the quality of the recruiter's candidates in the interview, so yes, both your competence and attitude matter. In the end, recruiters only care about your "attractiveness": ability to pass interviews (ie, please the interviewer), not brutal honesty or insane technical skills. You should also do this in the context of your job search.

Re-evaluate what you are doing wrong and where you lack experience, before more recruiters abandon you. Your initial enthusiasm based on select

Vuelva a evaluar lo que está haciendo mal y dónde le falta experiencia, antes de que lo abandonen más reclutadores. Su entusiasmo inicial basado en la selección / selección de su currículum no significa nada si no puede aprobar las entrevistas.
